Cities of­fer re­sources for busi­nesses and shop­pers

Texarkana Gazette - - METRO/STATE - By Karl Richter

Both Texarkanas’ city gov­ern­ments are of­fer­ing free re­sources to help busi­nesses and shop­pers take ad­van­tage of Small Busi­ness Satur­day next week.

Busi­ness own­ers can get a com­pli­men­tary packet of pro­mo­tional items at ei­ther City Hall, and the Texas side is com­pil­ing a shop­pers’ guide to the day’s lo­cal ac­tiv­i­ties and pro­mo­tions.

Tak­ing place Nov. 25 this year, Small Busi­ness Satur­day en­cour­ages spend­ing at small, lo­cal busi­nesses dur­ing the post-Thanksgiving shop­ping rush.

Avail­able through Nov. 22, the free small busi­ness pack­ets are spon­sored by Amer­i­can Ex­press and in­clude items such as tote bags and stickers pro­mot­ing the “Shop Small” theme. Texas-side City Hall is also distribut­ing re­source kits it cre­ated for the Gov­er­nor’s Small Busi­ness Fo­rum held here re­cently.

Busi­ness own­ers can also visit shops­mall.com/ge­tready to cre­ate cus­tom pro­mo­tional ma­te­ri­als for Small Busi­ness Satur­day.

To be in­cluded in the Texas side’s shop­pers’ guide, con­nect with the city through its Face­book page at face­book. com/texarkana­texas or through its In­sta­gram ac­count at in­sta­gram.com/citytxktx. Hard copies of the guide will be avail­able at Texas-side City Hall, and it will be posted on the city’s web­site, ci.texarkana.tx.us.
